You don't say how many users you have, but I presume it's not that many since you're not a business.  On the wiki is a script to query Exchange for known users and feed this to a file your MTA can validate recipients against.  I think it's geared towoards Postfix, but it wouldn't be hard to modify it to create an acceptable sendmail (or other MTA) compatible format.

Depending on your needs, you could script this to run nightly, hourly, weekly, whatever.  If you rarely add or delete users you could just make it part of your user maintanence routine.  Lots of options.

SMF does have a mail list.  If you're having trouble configuring it I'd try there.  I've been running smf-sav and smf-spf for several years, albeit on SUSE.  Both work a treat.
